When I was selected for the CASEing the Catty design crew I was so excited!
It’s been such a wonderful experience so far – and has opened up a whole new pocket of creativity and inspiration for me. I had never really used the catalogue for anything other than a reference book for all my favourite products. Now, I look at all those gorgeous pictures in a totally new light!
What a lovely surprise it was to collect my mail this afternoon and open a gorgeous card from Elizabeth Gross, welcoming me onto the team.
We must have been on the same wavelength, because last week I made some congrats cards. 2 of them went over east for the other 2 new designers who joined at the same time as me – Krissy Buck and Deb Speijers.
I made another one, just for fun – because I am totally in love with those thinlits!!! And the Blooms & Bliss DSP has to be one of my new catty DSP favourites – the colours are divine!
While I was sending off cards, I also wanted to send one to another CTC crew member – Rachel Palmieri who has been a long time supporter of me & mypapercraftjourney. I remember her coming up to me at the convention event on the Gold Coast last year and saying “Hi, I’m Rachel, you don’t know me, but I read your blog and love your cards”. I was so overwhelmed – that someone other than my Mum was reading my blog!!!
In keeping with the theme of my congrats cards, I used assorted letters & letter pieces from the Sunshine Wishes thinlits to create a ‘thanks’ for the front of my card.
It’s always so much fun to create something a little different!
I’m looking forward to catching up with some ‘old’ stamping friends at the event in November, seeing some in real life and making new ones!
